The ultimate in circuit protection

Clipsal’s ground-breaking MAX9 system brings unparalleled installation speed and performance to you – and your customers, so you can deliver your best switchboard installation on every job, every time. MAX9 also introduces MAXBAR, the busbar that delivers it all, with an installation speed that’s up to 15 times faster than using cables for feeding RCBOs. MAX9 comes future-ready, with all RCDs and RCBOs in the range being type A. When you work with MAX9, you’ll be leading the way in safety and innovation with Arc Fault Detection Device technology, or AFDD. MAX9 also delivers best-in-class performance with its 100A rated system, products designed to withstand tough Aussie conditions, and breakers built to last.

MAXBAR - One bar delivers it all

MAX9 range brings in unparalleled installation speed with MAXBAR - the next generation of busbar. MAXBAR helps to achieve installation speed of up to 15 times faster than using cables for feeding the RCBOs. It also helps to provide you complete installation flexibility as a MAXBAR can connect the main switch directly to any type of  Clipsal RCBO - SLIM, 2 module, 3 Phase and even AFDD. 

Others see electricians as tradies only, we see them as a professional artists when it comes to switchboard installation. Therefore, we understand the importance of a professional finish inside a switchboard - it separates the experts from the cowboys. MAXBAR helps to achieve a perfectly clean installation inside a switchboard as no cables are needed for feeding RCBOs.
